xsane networked scanner returns "invalid argument"
I am having trouble getting my HP 6310 All-In-One scanner working using it on its ethernet interface, set to 192.168.1.208. Installed fine under cups for printing. hplib installed. I do the following.
~ $ hp-makeuri 192.168.1.208
HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.9.4b)

I then run
~ $ xsane hpaio:/net/Officejet_6300_series?ip=192.168.1.208
But I get an error window:
Failed to open device hpaio:/net/Officejet_6300_series?ip=192.168.1.208

What is wrong?
Try escaping the '?'
Actually I discoverred the problem. I ASSUMED that all necessary software was loaded at Slackware 13.0 install time. Wrong assumption, hpaio was NOT present. After installing it from the distro dvd I downloaded, everything worked perfectly.
